Glenfiddich Experimental Bartender

Speyside distillery Glenfiddich named bartender Johnny Tsai and chef Yu Lee from Taiwan as the victors in its World’s Most Experimental Bartender competition this week.

The competition asked bartenders from around the world to partner with artisans outside the whisky industry to create drinks that celebrate Glenfiddich.

Tsai, of Bar TCRC, and Lee, of Ninao Gelato, impressed with their creation, Xiao Long Fiddich, which combined Taiwanese bao buns with Glenfiddich. The pair froze the buns using dry ice before filling them with Glenfiddich-infused raisins, wax gourd candy, homemade maple syrup bacon and cashew nuts.
